DIY Christmas Centerpiece and Garland

Love this easy DIY Christmas Centerpiece! So simple and pretty!

It’s Christmas y’all!  I’m pumped to share my Christmas Table with you guys today which includes the world’s easiest DIY Christmas Centerpiece and Garland.   They say that “Necessity is the mother of invention.”  I live 30 minutes from a store without the word “Dollar” in its name and am prone to procrastination.  Those two things force me to think outside the box and use what I have on hand.

Need a last minute centerpiece? Love this Christmas Tablescape!

That’s how I came up with the world’s easiest centerpiece for my Christmas table.  I grabbed a two tiered tray and filled it with Christmas ornaments and it worked!  I found the tray at Target on the day after Christmas a few years ago but I saw one exactly like it at my local Target this week!  Here are some similar (affiliate) ones on Amazon.

I found the red and green ornaments at Walmart and the glitter vs the shine make a nice contrast for the centerpiece. (Similar affiliate ones on Amazon here.)

The next easiest DIY is the garland on the light fixture.  It’s a prelit garland that I wrapped through the fixture and hung some extra ornaments from the tree on it.  Does it get any easier than that?  I don’t think so.

While we’re here we may as well check out the rest of the dining room.  This is the first time I’ve ever put the tree in here and I kind of love it.  I’m not sure  why I never thought of it before.  You can still see it from the living room and we didn’t have to move any furniture. #winning

I’ve always used silver and blue in the dining room because it worked better with the wall color but it was kind of fun to pull the red into the dining room this year for a change.

I had some pretty cute helpers for this photoshoot too.
